A Pacing Question from the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race

A Pacing Question from the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race

Pacing isn’t is as simple as it seems. Sure, “maintain a steady pace” seems like good advice. But in practice, as researchers like Ross Tucker and Tim Noakes have shown , world records in track races between 1500 and 10,000 meters tend to be set with a fast start, a steady middle, and a fast finish. It’s not clear how much of this model is specific to running, and how much is a universal feature of endurance events, so it’s interesting to look at data from other sports. A recent study in the journal Sports Medicine , from researchers at the University of St. Mark and St. John, James Cook University, and the University of Essex, digs into the history of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which was first held in 1829 and has detailed records going back at least to 1890.
